What “The People” are saying about Beach House 7:

“A beguiling new pop gloss…The effect is as transcendent as ever.” - NY Times
 
“Beach House remain masters of the indefinable and their seventh album is their heaviest and most immersive-sounding of their career.” [Best New Music, 8.9/10] - Pitchfork
 
“These are big songs, full of wonder, and Beach House know it. Seven albums in, they’re at the start of something new.” [****] - Rolling Stone
 
“…The sounds are glorious” [****] - The Guardian
 
“One of the year’s best…” - The FADER
 
“Their boldest album to date…”  - Stereogum
 
“Beach House’s consistent brilliance is truly remarkable…” [8/10] - Exclaim!
 
“…Their most adventurous record yet.”  [Grade: B+] - Consequence of Sound
 
“Even tracks enveloped in Beach House’s signature pink haze are injected with a palpable jolt. This is uncharted territory, from the trap-like chain that rattles through lead single “Lemon Glow” or the grandiose swagger of acid rock anthem “Drunk In L.A…” - Billboard
 
“A stunning effort in a career full of them.” - Uproxx
 
“7 is massive and intimate, dense yet understandable, fresh yet classic.” [Grade: A] - Pretty Much Amazing

“It’s a nuanced progression and, in some ways, a diversion from Beach House’s already magnificent oeuvre, brilliant in how much farther it finds Beach House willing to go.” [Album of the Week] - Treble

“Black Car” Is The Latest Track From 7, The Acclaimed Forthcoming Album by Beach House

The band will perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live May 16th.

Beach House have shared “Black Car,” a captivating new song from 7 their highly anticipated new album. The dark, atmospheric track rides an undulating bass line along a building, arrhythmic pulse of a drum beat.
 
7 is already earning Beach House some of the best reviews of the band’s career. Stereogum says of the album, “There are great bands that reinvent themselves with each new album, others that hit a sweet spot and stick with what works, and then there’s Beach House. Over their decade-plus career, some might argue that the Baltimore-based band has largely adhered to a formula, but with 7 — their excellent seventh album— it’s clear that the duo has been playing the long game.”  Pitchfork offers this, “The record is one of rebirth, and easily the Baltimore duo’s most apparent sonic departure since 2012’s Bloom.” And The FADER raves, “The result is a weird and thrilling record that not only stands as one of the year’s best, but suggests that when it comes to pushing the limits of what the “Beach House sound” can be, Scally and Legrand are just getting started.”

Beach House has also scheduled a late night TV performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday, May 16th. And the band will perform a live in-studio session on KCRW in Los Angeles on May 15th.

Beach House To Release ‘7’, The Group’s 7th Album, Worldwide On May 11th, 2018. Now Experience The Transcendent New Track, “Dive”

Headlining worldwide tour dates: April 30th-October 20th, 2018

Cry those tears of joy, because Beach House will release 7, the group’s 7th full-length record, on CD/LP/CS/DL May 11th, 2018. The new Beach House album will be available worldwide on Sub Pop, except in Europe and Australia/New Zealand, where it will be released by Bella Union and Mistletone.

7 features standouts including the Valentine’s Day ‘18 single “Lemon Glow”, along with “Black Car,” “Drunk In LA,” “Dark Spring,” and today, their latest offering, the transcendent “Dive”. All of the songs on 7 began in Beach House’s home studio in Baltimore, and were finished at Carriage House in Stamford, CT and Palmetto Studio in Los Angeles. The album was mixed by Alan Moulder.

Beach House (Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand) released B-sides and Rarities in 2017, which served as a proverbial “cleaning out the closet” to pave way for a new creative process.  Their approach in the creation of 7 was rebirth and rejuvenation.  Scally and Legrand used to limit themselves to what they thought they could perform live, but this time that limitation was ignored.  Also, instead of one long studio session, Beach House recorded when inspired by batches of songs, which resulted in five mini-sessions over the course of eleven months.
 
Unlike the last four albums, 7 didn’t have a producer in the traditional sense. Spacemen 3’s Sonic Boom (Peter Kember) became a significant force on this record by shedding conventions and helping to keep the songs alive, fresh, and protected from the destructive elements of recording studio overproduction and over-perfection.  The band’s trusted live drummer from 2016 to the present, James Barone, played on the entire record, helping to keep rhythm at the center of a lot of these songs.



7 is available for preorder now from Sub PopBella Union (Europe), and Mistletone (Australia / New Zealand). Pre-orders of the LP through megamart.subpop.com and select independent retailers in North America will receive the limited Loser Edition on opaque yellow vinyl.

Beach House ‘B-Sides and Rarities’ Album Is Out Today

Beachhouse 2017 promo shawnbrackbill dsc2401 2

2017 International & US tour dates resume August 11th

[Photo Credit: Shawn Brackbill]

Beach House B-Sides and Rarities is now available in finer independent record stores, and you can stream every last minute of it through Spotify, Apple Music, or YouTube.

NPR Music says of the album: “Beach House has spent 13 years and six albums perfecting a hazy dream-pop sound that’s as versatile as it is enduringly, endearingly simple. Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally make brooding, deliberately paced music that still sparkles and sweetens in surprising ways — a contradiction summed up by the title of one of Beach House’s best records, Depression Cherry…Given its title, B-Sides And Rarities is upfront about being an exercise for enthusiasts, completists and other loving obsessives. But more casual fans shouldn’t shrug it off, either. Beach House has mounted a marvelous career on its ability to set a gloomy electro-pop mood without losing touch with its brighter side — and that gift stays on full display throughout this shaggily appealing assortment of orphaned gems [link here].”


Furthermore from Rolling Stone: “Baltimore’s dream-pop magicians offer up every previous non-LP studio track they’ve made – 14 in all. The result, unsurprisingly, is another beautifully sculpted, Fifties-goths-in-amber Beach House LP. Which isn’t to say there aren’t surprises like the snarling guitar that transforms the alternate single version of Teen Dream’s wistful “Used to Be” into something much fiercer. And “Rain in Numbers,” recorded just weeks after the band formed, is the sound of a sound being born.”

You might also like to not miss the new video for “Chariot” (from B-Sides and Rarities) which was directed by the band. The visual acts as a rumination on the creation, cultivation, and confusion of narratives in media.


Beach House’s B-Sides and Rarities can be purchased on CD / LP / DL / CS in North America from Sub Pop right here, in Europe from Bella Union, and Australia from Mistletone. LP orders in North America through the Sub Pop Mega Mart and select independent retailers will receive the Loser Edition on crystal clear vinyl (while supplies last).

Watch the Beach House directed video for “Chariot,” from their forthcoming ‘B-Sides and Rarities’ Album (out June 30)

B-Sides and Rarities will be available June 30th in North America from Sub Pop, in Europe from Bella Union and in Australia/New Zealand from Mistletone.

The video for “Chariot,” directed by the band, is a rumination on the creation, cultivation, and confusion of narratives in media.

The “Chariot” video comes from Beach House’s B-Sides and Rarities album, a 14-track compilation of songs from throughout their career so far, out June 30th. The album features 2 previously unreleased tracks “Chariot” and “Baseball Diamond,” which were recorded during the Depression Cherry and Thank Your Lucky Stars sessions (both Depression Cherry and Thank Your Lucky Stars were released, 2 months apart, in 2015)

Beach House says of the release, “When we announced that we were releasing a B-sides and Rarities album, someone on Twitter asked, ‘B-sides record? Why would Beach House put out a B-sides record? Their A-sides are like B-sides.’ This random person has a point. Our goal has never been to make music that is explicitly commercial. Over the years, as we have worked on our 6 LPs, it wasn’t the ‘best’ or most catchy songs that made the records, just the ones that fit together to make a cohesive work. Accordingly, our B-sides are not songs that we didn’t like as much, just ones that didn’t have a place on the records we were making.”

“The idea for a B-sides record came when we realized just how many non-album songs had been made over the years, and how hard it was to find and hear many of them. This compilation contains every song we have ever made that does not exist on one of our records. There are 14 songs in total [Read more about the record right over here].” 


Beach House’s B-Sides and Rarities will be released on CD / LP / CASS / DL and is available for pre-order now here. LP pre-orders in North America through the Sub Pop Mega Mart and select independent retailers will receive the Loser Edition on crystal clear vinyl (while supplies last), and a new T-shirt design will also be available to bundle with the album.
